I had suffered hemifacial spasm for 10 years, after trying different medications, acupuncture, botox, etc. My only option was microvascular decompression surgery (MVD). It was a difficult decision. When I started to look for a doctor in my area all pointed in the direction of this wonderful doctor. He took the trouble to answer all my questions and gave me the confidence to proceed. The surgery was a complete success. He returned the smile to my face. He changed my life. Thank you doctor.

Dios lo bendiga.

I was seeing another neurologist and wasn't happy. Luckily I found Alamo Neurology! Right from the start the staff was so nice and made sure I got the earliest available appointment. Dr. Wu was Amazing!

Outstanding "bedside manner". Always takes time to discuss and explain issues during appointments and never makes you feel rushed.

Tips & Advices
Neurologists must first obtain an undergraduate pre-medical degree, and the next step in their education involves four years at medical school. Upon completing medical school, neurologists typically enter a one-year internship program, and this is followed by a three-year residency program in neurology. After this residency is completed, neurologists may receive advanced training via a fellowship program, and these typically last one to two years.
The cost of a neurological exam will depend on the service that is being provided. If  electromyography (EMG) testing is being performed, the cost could run $150-$500 per test. Other types of diagnostic tests include a nerve biopsy, a spinal tap, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The total cost for having a spinal tap administered can run $3,000-$5,000.
A wide range of options are available for the treatment of neurological disorders. The symptoms of Parkinson's disease may be relieved with Botox injections and deep-brain stimulation. Multiple sclerosis may be addressed with disease-modifying therapies that are offered in injection, intravenous, and oral forms, and emotional, cognitive, and physical therapies are often recommended to support the process. Stroke treatments include blood thinners, blood pressure control, and thrombolytic therapy to break up blood clots.
Strictly speaking, dementia is not the same as Alzheimer's disease. Dementia refers to a set of symptoms, and these include language difficulty, confusion, and memory loss. Alzheimer's disease is one cause of dementia, and it's responsible for 60 percent to 70 percent of all dementia cases. However, other illnesses can trigger dementia, as well, and these include Parkinson's disease and Lewy body disease.
The signs of a concussion may include headache, lack of coordination, memory loss, vomiting, nausea, dizziness, ringing in the ears, confusion, and severe fatigue. A concussion is typically caused by an injury that causes your head and brain to be quickly shaken back and forth. A concussion can be caused by a fall or a car accident, and it may also occur during participation in impact sports.
